Relevance of research of development factors of renewable energy sources (RES) for power supply of remote consumers is explained by search of effective leverage of their stimulation.The novelty of the research results consists in the model development for assessing the factors impact on the development of innovative energy supply based on the method of linear regression and correlation analysis using a single – factor model. In the model, it is proposed to use the share of consumption of renewable energy in the total consumption as a resultant variable. For an independent variable, the authors propose to take the volume of investments in renewable energy sources. The source of data on the values of the factor variable is the World Bank database. Based on statistical data, the authors described the economic and mathematical model of the impact of investments in innovative energy sources on the share of consumed energy by the linear regression equation.The materials of the article are of theoretical value for scientific research in the field of management of technological innovations in renewable energy. The economic and mathematical model proposed by the authors of the article is useful for making investment decisions on innovative energy supply to remote consumers at the state and business level.

Keywords: remote consumers; isolated power systems, renewable energy sources; economic efficiency; development factors.
